The Southeast Seminole Heights Flooding Relief Project involves designing and building a major stormwater conveyance system to improve drainage and reduce flooding of roadways, homes and businesses. This work is part of the City’s ongoing commitment to invest in neighborhoods and upgrade essential infrastructure. Construction will begin in Fall 2021 and will be completed approximately 2.5 years later.

This website is designed to provide Seminole Heights residents and businesses with information on the project and keep you updated through design, permitting and construction.

The Southeast Seminole Heights Flooding Relief Project is a candidate for co-funding from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. If approved, the project may receive up to $16 million in co-funding for construction of stormwater improvements.
